CCE has announced a program to support new operating business initiatives that will improve our platform for long-term, sustainable growth as we manage through continued marketplace challenges. This program, which is subject to consultations with workers’ councils, includes initiatives to restructure portions of our finance back-office functions and new initiatives to restructure portions of our go-to-market model. Subject to the consultations with workers’ councils, we anticipate this program to be completed by the end of 2014 and to include non-recurring restructuring charges of approximately $200 million. This program is designed to increase the effectiveness of our sales teams, improve operational efficiency, generate approximately $100 million in ongoing benefits by 2015, allow us to continue to invest in our business, and improve our platform for long-term, sustainable growth.
